Star Wars pod racer game
« on: March 15, 2014, 12:38:18 PM »
Went into the office on Thursday and while chatting with my boss about gaming, consoles vs PCs, etc we got onto the subject of the star wars pod racing game.  Learned that he was involved with the creation of the game and learned some interesting tibits

* The game's actual title was "Star Wars Episode 1 Racer".  Another company had a game called POD and owned the trademarks and apparently a deal couldn't be worked out.  Cover art and title were arranged so that people made the association anyways.
* The cockpit POV shots in the movie weren't originally planned and came about after seeing the shots from the game.
* When it came to the games apparently Lucas was pretty chill
